What Is a Dermal Filler Treatment?

Dermal filler treatments are a popular cosmetic solution for reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and restoring volume to the face. The treatment works by injecting a smooth, gel-like substance into the skin. The substance used in dermal fillers is a hyaluronic acid-based material, which is naturally occurring in the skin. The hyaluronic acid acts as a “sponge,” attracting and holding water, which adds volume and hydration to the skin. This helps to smooth out wrinkles and restore a more youthful appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does the dermal filler treatment last?

The duration of dermal filler results can vary depending on a number of factors, including the type of filler used, the area being treated, and the patient’s age and skin condition. On average, results can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years.

Is dermal filler treatment painful?

Most patients describe the injections as feeling like a small pinch. However, some areas of the face may be more sensitive than others. At Quadrant Dental Practice, we use the latest techniques and technology to minimise discomfort, and we also offer numbing agents to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Are there any side effects associated with dermal filler treatment?

As with any medical procedure, there is a risk of side effects associated with dermal filler treatment. Common side effects include swelling, redness, and tenderness at the injection site. These side effects are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

Who should not receive dermal filler treatment?

Dermal filler treatment is not recommended for individuals with a history of severe allergies or allergies to the ingredients in the filler product, as well as for individuals with skin infections, inflammation, or skin injuries in the treatment area. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also avoid dermal filler treatment. It is important to discuss your medical history and any concerns with your doctor before undergoing the procedure.

What areas of the face can be treated with dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers are versatile and can be used to treat various areas of the face, including the lips, cheeks, under-eye hollows, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jawline, and temples. Additionally, they can be employed for non-surgical rhinoplasty and hand rejuvenation, making them a comprehensive solution for facial enhancement.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers are generally considered safe when administered by trained and qualified medical professionals. The materials used in fillers are often well-tolerated by the body, and serious complications are rare. However, like any medical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects, which should be discussed thoroughly with a qualified provider before undergoing treatment.

How long do dermal filler results last?

The duration of dermal filler results varies depending on the type of filler used, the treated area, and individual factors. Generally, results can last from six months to two years. Regular maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain optimal results over time.

What types of dermal fillers are available?

Several types of dermal fillers are available, each with unique properties and uses. Common types include hyaluronic acid fillers, collagen-based fillers, and synthetic fillers. The choice of filler depends on the treatment goals, the area being addressed, and individual preferences.

Can dermal fillers be used for lip augmentation?

Yes, dermal fillers are frequently used for lip augmentation to add volume, enhance shape, and improve symmetry. Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly chosen for lip injections due to their natural-looking results and temporary nature, allowing adjustments if needed.

Are there any side effects of dermal filler treatments?

While dermal fillers are generally safe, some common side effects may include swelling, bruising, redness, or tenderness at the injection site. These effects are usually temporary and subside within a few days. Serious complications are rare but may include infection, allergic reactions, or migration of the filler, emphasising the importance of seeking treatment from qualified practitioners.

At what age is it appropriate to consider dermal filler treatments?

The appropriateness of dermal filler treatments depends on individual factors such as skin condition, concerns, and aesthetic goals rather than a specific age. Some individuals may start considering dermal fillers in their late twenties to early thirties as a preventive measure, while others may choose them later to address specific signs of aging.

Can dermal fillers be used to treat wrinkles and fine lines?

Yes, dermal fillers are commonly used to treat wrinkles and fine lines by filling in and plumping the skin. They are particularly effective for addressing nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and lines around the mouth and eyes, providing a smoother and more youthful appearance.

How soon will I see results after getting dermal fillers?

Results from dermal filler treatments are often visible immediately, although some swelling may initially obscure the final outcome. As swelling subsides over the first few days, patients can appreciate the full effects of the treatment.

Can dermal fillers be used for non-surgical rhinoplasty?

Yes, dermal fillers can be used for non-surgical rhinoplasty to reshape and enhance the nose without surgery. This approach is suitable for individuals seeking minor adjustments, such as correcting nasal asymmetry or smoothing out bumps on the bridge of the nose.

Are there any long-term effects of regular dermal filler treatments?

Long-term effects of regular dermal filler treatments are generally positive, contributing to ongoing facial rejuvenation. However, individual responses may vary, and it’s essential to discuss long-term treatment plans and potential effects with our professionals.

Do dermal filler injections require anaesthesia?

Dermal filler injections typically do not require general anaesthesia. Many fillers contain a local anaesthetic to minimise discomfort during the procedure. In some cases, a topical numbing cream may be applied before injection to further enhance patient comfort.

Are there any specific post-treatment care instructions for dermal fillers?

Post-treatment care for dermal fillers may include avoiding strenuous exercise, applying ice to reduce swelling, and refraining from certain medications that could increase the risk of bruising. Patients should follow our specific instructions for optimal results and recovery.

Is it normal to experience bruising or swelling after dermal filler injections?

It is normal to experience mild bruising or swelling after dermal filler injections. These side effects are usually temporary and can be minimised by following post-treatment care instructions, such as applying ice and avoiding blood-thinning medications.

Can pregnant or breastfeeding individuals receive dermal filler injections?

The safety of dermal filler injections during pregnancy and breastfeeding has not been thoroughly studied, and it is generally recommended to avoid elective cosmetic procedures during these periods. Consultation with our professional is crucial for individualised guidance.

Are there any contraindications or conditions that may prevent me from getting dermal fillers?

Certain medical conditions, allergies, or medications may be contraindications for dermal filler treatments. A thorough consultation with us is essential to assess individual health and determine candidacy for the procedure.

What should I look for in a qualified provider for dermal filler treatments?

A qualified provider for dermal filler treatments should have appropriate medical training, experience in aesthetic procedures, and certification in the administration of dermal fillers. It’s important to choose a licensed and reputable professional who prioritises patient safety, provides thorough consultations, and ensures proper post-treatment care.
